from James Christie of the Globe and Mail,
Former National Hockey League president John Ziegler believes current commissioner Gary Bettman and his team have done a good job building the game, and that Bettman’s crowning achievement was to get owners to stand together to forge the last collective agreement with the players.
“They let the costs get out of control for too long and had to address that,” Ziegler, president of the NHL from 1977 to 1992, said yesterday. “But not only did they address it, they got a salary cap in place that’s led to this wonderful parity and a race down to the wire to get into the playoffs. I give a real salute to the people who got the game to where it is.”
